Event Title

Wide-Field Probe Modeling for the Inspection in Web Areas

Location

Description

The web area is one of the most common geometries in rotary engine components. The web area to be inspected is several inches wide and the time required for the inspection using the conventional method is considerable. With this method, a small split D-shaped eddy current coil is scanned in a spiral fashion. To completely scan the web area, it would take more than a hundred passes with the conventional approach. In order to improve the time efficiency, the wide-field probe has been selected as an alternative way of inspecting the web area of the disk. Figure 1 gives a side view of the conventional probe and wide-field probe on a section of the web area.
